Great website! Have always enjoyed coming here for good deals on little things I need help with. One thing is, sometimes people aren't able to complete the gigs as expected, but you'll find someone to. Would recommend with confidence.
Totally annoying that you need to reload the site every time I returned from a peak at a designers work. I have waited for hours to receive an activation mail - still haven't got it. After I deciding to use my private Facebook profile to login and buy a service I was rerouted to the payment site... So, now i actually don't know if I have payed or not.
I have logged off and turned to 99 Designs here things runs smoothly!
I heard about fiverr from a friend and am so glad that I decided to sign up! it's a great way to make a little bit of money, and new experiences. This is a great too, especially for an unemployed person trying to keep busy in a positive, productive way.
My Bitcoin mining ad was pulled, flagged, "Spam, Misleading, or illegal". After a rather scathing email to them, I received (3 days later) an email stating they did not allow "Mining " ads. Minutes later, an email from them offering mining services arrived, while responding to the "Official" reason, I did a search for "Bitcoin" and 4 of the first 5 gig's was for Bitcoin mining, I'll update if something changes, but the whole ordeal leaves me feeling rather flat.
Great choice of gigs. I always read reviews of the seller before ordering and have had great people getting the job done for a fraction of the price. The only times it hasn't worked out is when the seller is foreign and there is mis-communication through the language barrier! Hardly Fiverr's fault! Will defo use them again!
I do editing and translation as a side gigs for years, mostly volunteering for friends and good causes. People kept telling me how good I was at it and how I could make some money, but I didn't know how. I discovered fiver.com and I was on my way to earning in as little as one week. The sign up was easy and the process from start to finish was outlined in a simple and effective way. I have saved enough money each month to cover my monthly internet and phone bills. 5 dollars each gig sounds like a little but it adds up. I'm really happy with how easy it was. It has also given me the confidence and more professional experience to go places with this as a career. I definitely recommend checking it out!
There are good folks and bad folks on Fiverr because it is a marketplace. Generally speaking you get OK results, sometimes the results kinda suck, and sometimes you get AMAZING results and it sometimes takes trial and error if you are looking for a specific service like a video to find the right "voice" and quality.
I don't really blame fiverr, but it seems like there's a lot of people on fiverr trying to promote MUCH more expensive things - and some of them can't do anything for $5. Some of them are plain rude "if you can't afford (fill in the blank), you shouldn't be doing (fill in the blank)". Some of us just found something interesting on fiverr and thought we'd support it...not all of us are idiots. I've gotten lucky a couple of times and actually got what I paid for.
I agree that Fiverr has both scam and valid service providers and you have to be careful as you're picking up the right one for your app promotion. I would check profiles of people who've left thumbs up for a particular service provider to see if there are any interconnection between them. I am considering SEOClerks.com now for my SEO purpose, I heard a lot good about this site.
I purchased some gigs on fiverr and some had such a poor quality that I left negative feedback after lose my money. After that I get my account banned and they send me a message: "we cannot accept undermining our community". It was just a negative feedback for a work never delivered. I had money in my fiver account and lost them.
What a cool, original and refreshing idea! An amazing create outlet, allowing people to express themselves and make money while doing so. I've ordered a prank video, which turned out to be hilarious! Spend a few hours in fiverr - there's definitely something in there for everyone
I found Fiverr to be an incredibly useful source of talent. It's so easy to use and it's very affordable. Highly recommend it for those looking for resources to get their businesses up and running. Also, a great place to get fun and unique gifts with their illustrators and artists.
I've been using Fiverr off and on for a while, for small jobs - things like a quick placeholder logo for an example website, or funny videos for "propaganda" for my gaming guild. As long as you don't expect too much, the stuff on there is pretty good.
I've only had one bad experience out of more than a dozen purchases - I tried to buy writing services from there and the seller returned something that was poorly written, in broken English and barely related to the subject I'd asked for. I expected as much, really - it was just a test purchase. You get what you pay for, and I'm happy to pay a lot more for good work. Still, for quick/simple jobs that you think actually are worth $5, it's worth a look.
